Issued Fifty Pound notes

There are very few issued £50 notes known from the pre-partition era.

Northern Bank £20, £50, and £100 notes from the 1914-1918 era which were overprinted for use in Northern Ireland post 6 May 1929 are well-known, and most varieties are readily available.

Equally rare, a Belfast Banking company General Issue £50 note.
It's in nice condition too.
